Funny / Evita

Go To

  • The Funny Moment is probably, from "Rainbow Tour":
    Eva: Did you hear that? They called me a whore! They actually called me a whore!
  • Rainbow Tour actually has several subjectively funny moments.
    • "More bad news from Rome, she met with the Pope...she only got a rosary, a kindly word! I wouldn't say the holy father gave her the bird...but Papal decorations, never a hope!

    • "Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory/They equate Peron with Mussolini - can't think why!" (In the film, Antonio Banderas gives a priceless look at the camera.)
    • "Tired? Eva? Tired?"
    • "She filled a bullring/forty-five thousand seater/but if you're prettier than General Franco, that's not hard...
    • "I don't think she'll make it to England now"/"It wasn't on the schedule anyhow"
  • "Good Night and Thank You" has a few:
    Eva: Oh, but it's sad when a love affair dies/The parting, the closing of doors/But we should be honest, stop fooling ourselves..."
    Che: ...which means "Up yours"!

    Eva: Oh, but it's sad when a love affair dies/But when we were hot, we were hot!/I know you'll look back on the good times we shared...
    Che: ...but Eva will not!

    Eva: Oh, but it's sad when a love affair dies/The decline into silence and doubt/Our passion was just too intense to survive—"
    Che: For God's sake, get out!
    • One especially amusing moment is during a later stanza of the song in which several of Eva's exes are collectively singing their woes of being tossed aside, and Che, as a busboy in a restaurant, briefly stands with them, resting his forearm on the shoulder of one of her exes, and joins them to sing "Oh but it's sad when a love-affair dies" with an expression as smarmy as it is utterly narmy before shooing them all out and closing the French-doors behind the dismissed exes before turning to fold his arms and look at the camera.

  • "The Lady's Got Potential" is pretty darn funny all the way through, given the deadpan snark. Just the first verse tells you it will be an amusingly cynical re-telling of events.
    Che: In June of '43, there was a military coup/Behind it was a gang called the GOU/Who did not feel the need to be elected./They had themselves a party at the point of a gun/They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun/A bomb or two and very few objected.
  • "Eva and Magaldi"/"Eva, Beware of the City" has Che fire one at Magaldi, shocked that Eva sees more than a fling in him
    Che: Do all your one night stands give you this much trouble?
  • "Charity Concert" has Magaldi fire one at Eva, at the event in the company a high-ranking officer.
    Eva: Your act hasn't changed much.
  • Let's be real here. Given Che's status as the resident permanent Deadpan Snarker means that pretty much any time he opens his mouth, it's bound to be at least a little funny... Highlights other than those not mentioned above include him not even bothering to learn the names of Eva's suitors and instead just calling them "whoever"; everything he says in "Peron's Latest Flame"; and this line:
    Che: We'd love you to stay but you'd be in the way/So do up your trousers and go.

  • The Snark-to-Snark Combat of "The Waltz For Eva And Che" is quite funny too. At least before it descends into Tearjerker mode...


How well does it match the trope?
